WRAL Freedom Balloon Festival

Memorial Day Weekend May 26-29

Up, up and away! Fuquay-Varina reaches new heights on Memorial Day weekend in 2017 as dozens of hot air balloons take flight at the WRAL Freedom Balloon Fest. The Town of Fuquay-Varina is excited to have been chosen as the host community for this spectacular event which had more than 80,000 people attend in 2016, the first year it was hosted in our town.
